He spoke to the media on the side-lines of the commissioning of the Toyota Tushuo Manufacturing Ghana plant in Tema on June 29, 2021.

“We had to bring a lot of raw materials to enable us executive things in similar nature with regards to that, there will be the need if we can be able to get some form of assistance from the high level so that when it comes to equipment, materials that can be used to do jobs like this, particularly things that can bring business not to one person but to the whole country, then it will be good if we get assistance to be able to handle some of these important areas,” he said.

All parts of this facility require certain precision which is not more than 5mm in terms of tolerance. We have been able to do this and it has been vetted and it is functional currently,” Mr Mensah added.
